I invite you to share in these inspirational poems of encouragement, perseverance, and the testimony to Gods healing word. The Lord gave me the courage that I needed, after 17 years to publish this collection. I pray you are touched through my heartfelt writings.
There are times in life when challenges, frustrations & our own choices can take us to places that we would rather not be. In the rage of these emotional storms, we seem unable to truly know how to get out.
The hope and courage God gives us deep inside 'ourselves' will bring us anew life, new hopes & dreams.
It is not what others may seem to think what is good for us as individuals, It is God alone who knows. Reminding ourselves everyday is Unique, and we are our own "Special Person."
In Gems of a Lifetime, Barbara Patton Unger shares 'gems' of light that she has mined in her life. Her metaphor of Gemstones for these illuminations points to a glorious and loving God.She focuses on the precious jewels of light discovered from growing up in her hometown of Joplin, Missouri and gives voice to Oracles of Wisdom gained through, and sometimes in spite of, religious affiliation. She then honors the greatest light of all - the essence of the divine within us. She shows God's goodness IS 'OUR' glory; and these "gemstones" point us to our own days of Heaven on Earth. Awakened to the truth of our "spiritual DNA," she presents her treasures to help others recognize how, even in the midst of sorrows, God can enrich their lives if they look for, value and mine their own sparkling gems.
This book, "A catalogue of impressions in sulphur of antique and modern gems from which pastes are made and sold," by James Tassie, is a replication of a book originally published before 1775. It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible.
